About the Song
Lord help me Jesus
I’ve wasted it so help me Jesus
I know what I am
But now that I know
That I needed you so help me Jesus
My souls in your hand
The song reminds us that no one compares to the glory of God. In whatever we do, we need Jesus to guide and protect us all the time. He is our source of strength and power because, without him, we are nothing.
The song speaks that in our hearts, we still need the love and grace of Jesus. He still accepts us no matter who we are. When you finally accept Jesus in your life, you will never feel unloved or insecure. Though we are sinners, Jesus still accepts us whoever we are. We must not forget how to pray every day and thank him for giving us life.
During your bad days, God is there by your side, ready to pull you up. Just trust in Him.
